But to discuss the removal of cmp() for more than a year, only to discover moments after the moment supreme of the 3.0 release, it was actually not removed, and then to discuss for two months and counting whether or not to fix this in release 3.1 or 3.0.1, that, well, that is something completely different.

Why on earth didn't they take all the changes they'd decided to make, stick them in their bug tracker as 'critical', and only close them as the actual change was merged?
